Supreme Court throws out lower court ruling that forces Notre Dame to provide contraception

In case anybody doesn’t already realize this, Notre Dame University is a private Catholic school, and Obamacare’s contraception mandate forcing institutions to provide health insurance covering contraception and abortifacients specifically violates mainstream Catholic beliefs.

After the landmark Hobby Lobby ruling, the 7th Circuit of Appeals court tried to rule that Notre Dame was still required to provide contraception coverage to employees and students who used their health care system, but today the Supreme Court tossed out that decision and ordered the 7th Circuit to rehear the case.

from Reuters:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday revived the University of Notre Dame’s religious objections to the requirement for contraception coverage under President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, throwing out a lower court decision in favor of the federal government.

The justices asked the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider its decision against the South Bend, Indiana-based Roman Catholic university in light of the June 2014 Supreme Court ruling that allowed certain privately owned corporations to seek exemptions from the provision.

The case is part of national litigation concerning religious objections to the contraception provision of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, known widely as Obamacare.

The law requires employers to provide health insurance policies that cover preventive services for women including access to contraception and sterilization.

Various challengers, including family-owned companies and religious affiliated nonprofits that oppose abortion and sometimes the use of contraceptives, say the requirement infringes on their religious beliefs.
Mark Rienzi, a lawyer with the religious rights group Becket Fund for Religious Liberty who has been involved in similar cases, said Monday’s action was “a strong signal that the Supreme Court will ultimately reject the government’s narrow view of religious liberty.”

The concept of forcing anyone to buy anything is abhorrent and violates their inalienable right to liberty.
